I had an e-harmony account for a few years, but I had turned off my “paying” membership because, at the time, I was attending college in TN. I didn’t want to move to TN forever.
So, I graduated and moved home to MD for a few months to save up money. My older sister suggested, “you should do the free trial e-harmony thing!” I had forgotten that I still had a dormant account but just wasn’t sure I wanted to do it again. Who wants to meet your husband online??? That’s not romantic…
Or so I thought…
So, she convinced me, and I tapped back in to my account. Because I wasn’t paying, I couldn’t see people’s pictures. I started the “free trial.” Two days later, I get a message from this 26 year old guy named Tom. He was a high school music teacher and lived an hour away from me (that’s all I was allowed to see of his profile).
Wow! He’s a music person…I’m a music person! I wondered what he looked like. We started communicating through the free trial (which really only was like multiple choice questions – they don’t tell you that part🤔). We got all the way up to the actual “communicating” part which is where you can send private messages back and forth, but to do that, you have to pay for it…yeah, e-harmony, not quite “free”😒
Anyways…I was willing to pay to get to know him more, but I needed to know what he looked like first because let’s face it…ya gotta be attracted to the person! LoL 😉 I had some clues to try and find him online.
I knew: – The county he lived
– He was a high school music teacher
– His name is Tom.
I went on a hunt. I googled every high school in that county (which was like 20 or so), and I went to every school website to try and find a Tom, high school music teacher. The very last one I tried…there he was! Oh, he was so cute! 😊 Blond hair, big smile, confident looking. And there was his full name! So, I found him on Facebook, but his account was private.
I needed to go on a date with this man…😊
Part 2 coming soon!
